Holiday leads Bucks to a comeback win; Bucks one win from title

PHOENIX (AP) --Jrue Holiday's steal and alley-oop pass to Giannis Antetounmpo for a dunk sealed a wild Game 5 and gave the Milwaukee Bucks a 123-119 victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Antetokounmpo had 32 points, nine rebounds and six assists.

Khris Middleton added 29 points and Holiday had 27 points and 13 assists.

The Bucks shot their way out of an early 16-point hole but then won it by making a huge defensive play for the second straight game.

"Honestly, it was great team defense," Holiday said of his steal. "Feel like Booker wanted to take that last shot. We played great defense on him, made him turn his back and he ran in to me. I guess it was just right-place at the right time."

They can win their first title since 1971 in Milwaukee on Tuesday night.

Booker had 40 points for the Suns.
